We are all disheartened to hear of the recent...

We are all disheartened to hear of the recent events that occurred at 12th & Fitzwater on Friday evening. Another senseless shooting claimed the life of a 16-years old, young man and injured a 12-year old boy. Members of the Friends have been in touch with Lt. Goodson and the PPD. Over the past few months, our area has fallen victim to a number violent incidents which have not only put our communities at risk but claimed the lives of young people. Hawthorne has now had 4 shooting victims over the past month and 6 shooting victims since January 2018. This community has had much peace and tranquility over the past several years, free from of a violent crime. We have been informed that the area is continuing to receive high levels of support from the local, state, and federal partners who are working diligently to support the 3rd District and South Street Detail to identify and prosecute all parties involved as well promote ongoing Public Safety. The Police & Friends of the Police Mini Station are urging the support of all the community members to support the Police efforts. Anyone with any information is asked to contact Philadelphia Police. In the next few days the Friends of the South Street Police Mini-Station will be taking the led in the organizing of a prayer/community vigil to show solidarity in support of Hawthorne and those grieving. More information to follow.
